I've been fortunate to be able to participate in a couple of "wood swaps". They have provided me with with some unique wood from different parts of the country.

My question is, could get a wood swapping event started?

Thank you
Dick

Dick, that's simply a matter of interest. We can start a thread and ask, if their are enough members that want to swap then we can move forward.
Items that need to be factored in are
1. How much wood (what size box)
2. Shipping cost (what size box)
3. Shipping cost for those not in the contiguous 48 states
4. Compliance of quarantine zones for EAB and other wood diseases
This is off the top of my head, I'll try to put something together and see if it gets enough interest.

I realize it takes time and effort to this research, so, for your time and effort I offer you a sincere "thank you".

What is a reliable commercial source of a vacuum chuck system? I have had an order in at one vendor since October or November and still haven’t received the product. Anyone I should avoid?

I don't know what lathe you have but I bought my Vac system from them many years ago. Simple one stop shopping, everything from one supplier.
Everything still works perfectly

That's the kind of thing I would expect from Ralph  Grin

The most common answer is the Egyptians at about 1300 BC

Question:  If money were no issue and you could buy one piece from any other turner in the world, what would it be and who would have turned it?

Another question:  Who has been the most influencial person to you as a turner?

David Ellsworth for both questions.

...any piece from him.  I have 2 of Wendy's bead pieces and it would be nice to have something from him as well. Smiley

My question is,,,,Why turn bowls??  I have been turning for over 50 years, and don’t remember ever turning a bowl(or pens either)..
I turn balls, bats, canes, etc, never had a desire to turn bowls...the local thrift store has a table, that always has over 20 handturned bowls,,, priced as low as a $1 each,,, they seldom sell.....
And I turn balls and can’t keep up with the demand,.

Sooo ....why bowls???

Well.. when I can turn a bowl and sell it for $225..that seems to be a good reason.

Plus, I find turning pens a waste of time... now that is only MY opinion, mind you.

I'd be willing to bet that those bowls on the bargain table are of such low quality that they were destined to that table.

I might get into turning balls sometime in the future as it seems like a neat thing to do. Smiley

My question is:


What are you planning on doing or not doing related to the coronavirus?

I plan to spray everyone who comes into my store with Lysol. Shocked

Possibly just have a belt with cans of Lysol and spray anyone who gets within 6' of me. Thumbs Up
